12th May - Mixed Tournament + Club BBQ
Last year several of our members visited Mallorca and played in a friendly tournament with Mallorca Hockey Club. We're very happy to be welcoming them to join us and hoping they bring the sun with them too! In the daytime there'll be a Mixed Tournament with clubs from around the region taking part. Followed by a BBQ in the evening. Pete has already sent out info regarding the tournament - if you're not signed up to play you could help welcome, support or umpire. This BBQ will be a great opportunity to meet those visiting from Mallorca but also an opportunity to socialise with your own teammates, whether or not you played in the tournament that day. Buns, cheese and sauces will be provided but if folk could bring meat, drinks, salad and snacks that would be amazing.

17th May (TBC) - Club AGM
We'll be sending out more information about this in due course but our AGM is pencilled in for the 17th May. This is a key occasion in the club year where we elect officers to steward our club over the year to come. There's a number of people who have served the club for a number of years choosing to step down, do consider if you could step up and serve next year.
